Just as the sun, by its own motion and in accordance with its own inner law, climbs form morn till noon, crosses the meridian and goes its downward way towards evening, leaving its radiance behind it, and finally plunges into all-enveloping night, so man sets his course by immutable laws and, his journey over, sinks into darkness, to rise again in his children and begin the cycle anew. (Carl Jung, CW 5, paagraph 251)
The photo was taken last January in Rio Lagartos as I was sitting at a table enjoying a pre-supper drink with three others while at a sea-side restaurant in Mexico. It’s amazing what feelings arise when one experiences a sunset that is so colourful. The quotation which suits the photo was taken from an essay, The “Origin of the Hero,” by Jung taken from his Collected Works volume 5, Symbols of Transformation.
